LA ROUE


BIOGRAPHY

Jean-Michel Rolland is a French artist born in 1972.

A musician and a painter for a long time, he's been mixing his two passions - sound and image - in digital arts since 2010.
At the origin of each of his creations, musicality plays a role as important as image does and each one influences the other in a co-presence relationship.
The result is a series of experimental videos, audiovisual performances, generative art, interactive installations and VJ sets where sound and image are so inseparable that the one without the other would lose its meaning.

This formal research is guided by the desire to reveal the intrinsic nature of our perceptual environment and to twist it to better give new realities to the world around us.

His works, always very experimental, are a reflection of the sometimes unexpected inner world of their author and are nevertheless the object of an important international diffusion. Several of them have been rewarded for their originality, by Digital Graffiti in Miami (USA), Multimatograf (Russia), dokumentART (Germany and Poland), North Carolina University (USA), Artaq (France) and The International Video Art Review (Poland).

Convinced that dematerialization of video art is a strength and not a weakness, he allows anybody to access most of his productions on his website.
